Running Software as System Account in Altiris ITMS 7.1 SP2
We have to deploy a software package, and post it to the software portal, that requires us to modify a registry key under the HKEY_Current_User to register the software as activated. We created a script to call the install files then import the registry keys required to unlock the program from a trial version. When depolying the software the install works successfully but the registry keys are not imported. We verifired the script works when running it manually. We also modified the script to add the keys instead of importing, with the same result: failure.
In our previous Altiris 6.9 environment, we were able to configure the software portal to have the package use the the run as "system account" option. In Altiris 7 we only have additional options to deploy the software, not when posting the software to the portal. In either case the only deployment options are a) Management Agent b) Current logged-on user c) specific user
a. registry import fails because the agent credentials can not modify the HKEY_Current_User keys for the clients, so Management Agent is not an option
b. user community doesnt have permissions to modify the registry as part of security protocols, so logged-on user is not an option
c. as with the agent credential other users can not modify the HKEY_Current_User keys for the clients, so this is not an option
Is there any way to modify the options on the software portal to allow the software package to run as the system account?
